Now for the fun stuff…..
DVL, “the Jewel of the IE”, for some and an empty coal mine to others. With some during the week changes to the line up, we managed to get all of our anglers on boats and on the water. We had a team run into some issues and weren’t able to make it, but we did see 3 new smiley faces. We had Eddie, a boater, fishing with Tom C, Sherman fishing with Frank/Dean, and Thomas fishing with Kevin/Raul. They all caught fish!
With unexpected cloudy weather, we were able to fish without melting, which was great. The water was low, the ramp was limited to 2 boats at a time, and the walk felt extra long up and down the ramp, but it all worked out with minimal delays.
Fishing was tough for some teams, our team’s 3 fish wouldn’t have made 12″ if we laid them together and stepped on them. But, not to worry, some guys caught diamonds and not small bags of coal. The 1pm weigh-in saw multiple teams bring bags with a fish to be weighed for Big Fish honors, but there was only 1 limit. Big Fish weights started at 2+, then 3+, then 4+, only to be topped by a 6.48 kicker for Steve M. DANG! That fish, and some chubby others helped team Steve and Alfred take first place with 4 fish weighing a healthy 15.19. They were closely challenged by team Jr and Pops with the only 5 fish limit that went for 12.22. The last podium spot went to Eddie and Tom with 2 fish for 7.66.
Thanks to everyone for making the day awesome and can’t wait for next month! Hope to see the new faces again and great job catching fish!
